Thanks to Snakasblog and tontonreviews, we have a new video review and in-hand images for the upcoming Transformers Studio Series WWII Hot Rod!

Hot Rod is a retool of WWII Bumblebee, sporting a new chest, shoulders, head, and weapon. The new tooling brings the figure closer to his appearance in the World War II flashback from The Last Knight movie, though the alt mode is left with the same tooling as Bumblebee, leaving neither looking like their WWII alternate modes. Hot Rod also comes with a new accessory in the form of his Time Gun, which plugs into the top of the car mode, which sadly leaves a gap in the windshield area where Bumblebee's hammer would go.

Hot Rod is due out in January of 2020, where you can then pair him up with his fellow Nazi Hunter Bumblebee, forming a deadly pair.

Check out the images and review below, and let us know what you think of him in the comments section below!

The review doesn’t show it, but at least according to the renders Hot rod’s gun can be stored the same way Bee’s hammer is.

I think he looks ok but I won’t be picking him up. Hopefully, though, this means we’ll be getting reviews for Bumblebee, Soundwave, and the Arcees soon!

I do as well, which is funny, as I really don't care for WWII Bee at all.

I'm in it for these 2, as well, but there had better be a Bulldog in the future.

Considering these bodies existed for a 20 second flashback, I wouldn't doubt an eventual Bulldog.

I personally am really hoping for a Leader Infernocus though

I was hoping he'd have a little beret and a voice chip: "We all sound like Maurice Chevalier...uhhh-huhhh-huuhhhh".

Same.

It looks good, probably better than WW2 Bee, but ultimately, this figure serves as an upgrade kit for the TLK Deluxe Hut Rud.

I agree! I would like Bee much more if the roof tabbed down more tightly.. it always pops up on mine

Video review is out for the new SS Bumblebee!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFex0tV4bpM

It looks insanely good! I was initially worried that the wings would be stuck straight out, but not only can they move back and forth, they can move up and down! The new bulky arms and chest transformation are incredible, by far the best we've had on a deluxe Bumblebee.

Definitely my most anticipated figure for the new wave. Can't wait to have him!

Also, I recently acquired a Studio Series figure I've been waiting a long time for. Things are kinda busy right now, but I'll be posting about it soon!

Racing in from YouTuber TonTonReview is a video review for Transformers Studio Series #49 Deluxe Bumblebee! Thanks to Seibertronian EvasionModeBumblebee for the heads up on this one. This is fifth general retail Bumblebee released so far in the Studio Series and is an all new mold featuring a non-removable battle mask and a forearm that can be swapped out for his blaster. He comes with a cardboard backdrop display based on the tunnel interior where he scanned his new vehicle mode in Transformers from 2007. Enjoy the review and let us know if this is the Bumblebee for you in the forum. As always stay tuned to Seibertron for the ultimate in Transformers news!

He looks nice, and that gun is awesome. But I'm not sold on him. WW2 BB looked alright, and even though he technically had the wrong alternate mode (a Humber scout car as opposed to the Mercedes staff car of the movie), it was "close enough" that I didn't mind, and also the way the hammer formed the gun barrel on the alt mode was really nice. Hot Rod however was clearly meant to turn into a Sherman tank, and whilst I understand the need for retooling the fact we were robbed of a Transformer with a Sherman alt mode is tragic. Also the gun looks really weird on the alt mode, even in the "proper" place.

On a more positive note, whilst I can't find the gif right now, someone somewhere posted an in-hand shot of Shockwave. He doesn't look to be a retool of Megatron, as aside from anything else he hasn't got the hollow torso problem. He also looks really nice in general, and as someone that loves Shockwave in all his forms I might have to get him.

This looks like it’s going to be the definitive deluxe movie Bee, I’m so excited for- I’m sorry, what did you just say about the mask?

Wow, Bee is looking sharp!

That looks really good, I cannot wait for the next wave.

Greetings Seibertronians! Thanks to fellow Seibertron user, EvasionModeBumblebee, we've learned that YouTuber TonTon Reviews has uploaded a brand new review of Studio Series #51 Deluxe Class DotM Soundwave! This new mould represents Soundwave as he appeared in the third Transformers live action movie, Dark of the Moon. He also comes with a small to scale figure of Lazerbeak.

The review goes through the basics of articulation, and a closer look at the two modes.

We have embedded the video below for your convenience.



What do you think of the review? Will you be adding this release to your shelves? Let us know in the Energon Pub and stay tuned to Seibertron for all the latest news and reviews!

he doesn't transform the chest all the way. the headlight portions are supposed to flip all the war around to make his more movie accurate look

Next deluxe wave is shaping up nicely! I'm excited for the new movie guys next year
